The Challenge

The Challenge

Dan Branson has become the owner of the Triple Peaks cattle ranch, located near the eastern slopes of Oregon’s Cascade Mountains. As a dedicated Christian, he has consistently made himself available to the Lord’s leading and calling.

God’s messenger, Angelo, asks Dan to fly to South America to assist a Christian cattle rancher. The Mandera family are fourth generation owners of 20,000 acres of grazing land, located in central Argentina. Their son, Don Diego, who is not a Christian, has formed an alliance with an international cartel. The cartel has used threats, murder and violence in their attempts to take over the Mandera’s ranch.

The cartel’s ruthless actions, have taken the lives of two of the ranch’s gauchos, as well as critically wounding the ranch’s owner, Armando Mandera, when the ranch’s head wrangler was ambushed and killed by the cartel, the Manderas became desperate to locate a Christian leader to roundup and bring their herd in from their summer range.

Answering the Lord’s call, Dan flies to Argentina to assist the Manderas. The cartel spares nothing in their efforts to stop Dan from helping the Manderas. Upon his arrival in Buenos Aires, he is immediately confronted with attempts to compromise his Christian testimony. Additionally, his flight to the Mandera ranch in a small Cessna aircraft becomes challenging when the pilot, wearing a parachute, jumps from the aircraft.

The intriguing story and the completion of Dan’s mission are supported by the intervention and assistance of God’s angels.
